Top Tips when choosing a chandelier from The Lighting Store PDF Print E-mail

What you need to know when buying a chandelier


Lighting can make or break the look of a room and nothing makes more of a statement in a room as a chandelier. Here are The Lighting Store's top tips for choosing a chandelier.

The Lighting Store has been run by the same family for three generations and has been supplying and advising customers on beautiful lighting for over 60 years with brands like Flos, Artemide, Foscarini and more.

Ceiling Height - whether you're chosing a traditional or modern design the height of your ceiling is a major factor when choosing the design. Our eyes automatically lift towards the ceiling when we enter a room so, if you want to give the impression of extra height fit a chandelier that hangs closer to the ceiling. This is especially important in new builds where the ceilings are often quite low.

Size Matters - make sure the size of the chandelier is in proportion to the rest of the room, there's nothing worse than seeing a small chandelier hanging in a big room, or vice versa. The wrong size light can have a negative impact on the ambience of a room.

17th Century Dutch Delft tile designs from Art on Tiles PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 24 October 2012 15:40


PRESS RELEASE Issue date: 24th October 2012


Art on Tiles - the bespoke hand painted tile company - has re-discovered this charming set of six Dutch delft tile designs and made them available once more.


The original tiles were commissioned in the 17th century on the orders of a Dutch princess who married into the German royal family. On moving to Germany she immediately commissioned a Dutch architect with whom she spent more than twenty years decorating her husband's ancestral home to her taste.

The tiles, featuring a series of biblical scenes with a circular border and traditional oxhead corner motifs, were created in the traditional Dutch Delft technique which involves painting natural cobalt onto raw tin glaze before firing.

Jonathan Waights, Art on Tiles artist says; "There is a rich tradition of re-creating and passing on these lovely old designs and it is great to make these ones available once more. As well as hand painting them to order, which takes around six weeks, we are offering a digitally printed version which is ideal for customers who might need a faster lead time or have a tighter budget."

Fun and cute kids lighting and top tips on lighting your child's room from The Lighting Store

Both the cute insect lights (£90) and colour pencil (£74) with free delivery to anywhere in the UK. All available in store or online at www.lightingstore.co.uk

Top Tips for lighting children's rooms: When lighting a child's bedroom it is a good idea to use directional spots, to highlight certain areas, whether it's a baby's changing table or a feeding or reading chair. Make sure you use a dimmer switch so that you can change the mood of the room, especially when it's bedtime or you want the children to play quietly in their rooms, and have a children's plug in night light with a very low wattage to keep an eye on them without disturbing them and for going to the toilet.
